New York: People, Places and Things

NYC Library websites

The websites of the 3 New York City public library systems (New York Public Library, Queens Library, and Brooklyn Public Library) have some interesting local guides:

Online articles through FIT Databases

When looking for articles, you can often be even more specific than when looking for a book.
For example, you might search for "Coney Island" when looking for a book, but try "Coney Island Cyclone roller coaster" when searching for articles.

Many FIT Library databases provide the full text of the magazine and newspaper articles, but some only index them; check the e-journal portal to see if the article is available in full from another online database or from a copy of the printed magazine at FIT. You may also be able to get the article you want by borrowing from another library (ILL/Interlibrary Loan)

Local newspaper, magazine,TV news, and NYC agency websites
